Put a Sock On It…Goldilocks…

Jane CarrollI usually fall asleep fairly easily…except…when my feet are cold…and then…it just doesn’t happen…so…last night before I went to bed…knowing my feet were a little cool…Bertha…suggested that I put on socks…

Now…she may be my voice of wisdom…but…they are my feet…they weren’t that cold…which meant they’d probably get hot in the middle of the night…and the socks would have to be removed…yeah…I can’t sleep when my feet are too hot…either…

Yes…I know…I have Goldilocks feet…

Anyway…I went to bed…the sheets were cold…and…I couldn’t find a warm spot for my feet…I tried rubbing them together…I tried putting a pillow on them…but none of it worked and I wasn’t falling asleep…not only from the foot action…but from…Bertha… shouting…in her best Andy Griffith voice…just put some socks on

Finally…since I wasn’t getting any sleep anyway…I got up and…put on some socks…and…went right to sleep…

Of course…this morning…Bertha…said the whole thing reminded her of life…in general…and mine in particular…oftentimes there is such a simple solution to a problem…but…for whatever reason…I…waste time and resources trying everything else…before doing what I know I could have easily done in the first place…saving time and money…

Are You Asking for What You Want?

Jane CarrollThe other day…I unthinkingly mentioned to…Bertha…that I was bored in a certain situation in my life…and wished it was a little more…challenging

Oh…she jumped on that quicker than a Girl Scout shows up at your door when you want a cookie…asking me if that is what I really wanted…

Duh…I’m bored…I want a challenge

She just smiled and asked if what I really wanted…was to be more…stimulated

Well…aren’t they the same thing…

No…not at all…she explained…the word…challenge…indicates strife in some way…while…stimulation…indicates inspiration and enthusiasm…they are nothing like the same thing…

She went on to say that this is an important part of living my truth…knowing what I really want…and asking for it…because…as her Grandma Minnie Mae always said…be careful what you wish for…you just might get it…

What can I say…she is right…either challenge or stimulation would break the boredom…but I really don’t enjoy strife…so…now I know what to ask for…and I think I’ll spend some time in the contemplation chair just thinking about all the times I’ve said…I love a challenge

Geez…I could be there a while…
